The Ecosystem Management program is offered jointly by the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University and the School of Environment and Natural Resource Sciences at Fleming College, allowing you to combine your university education with specialized, college-based training.

Graduates of the program receive a Bachelor in Environmental Studies (BES) degree from York University and an Advanced Diploma in Ecosystem Management Technology from Fleming College in just 5 years!

Program Highlights

An ecosystem is a community of plants and animals (including humans) and their physical environment, functioning together as an interdependent unit. Ecosystems can range in size from as small as a pond to as large as a watershed or mountain range or desert. An ecosystem is dynamic and ever changing: every instant, every day, every season, every year. The approach to the study of ecosystems is based on whole ecosystem function, rather than on single elements or species in isolation.

The objectives of ecosystem management blend long-term needs of people and environmental values so the land will support diverse, productive ecosystems and sustainable ecosystem processes. Some key concepts in York's ecosystem management program are:

  • conservation
  • ecological restoration
  • park management
  • wetland rehabilitation

Who can take it?

  1. While in your final year of the Advanced Diploma in Ecosystem Management Technology at Fleming College.
